About us

El Pozo de Vida is a NGO that fights against human trafficking in Mexico and Central America. We are committed to the prevention, intervention, and restoration of children, families and communities who are vulnerable to this crime, so that they can experience freedom and a fresh start in life. 

We currently have 9 projects that allow us to have influence on a national level in Mexico, as well as to be references on a continental level; we are part of the Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling in Latin America and the Caribbean.
